We recognized our coaches Mick Wilkes and Grant Challen for their large commitment to the team with a gift certificate and VHS's(Mick still does the VCR thing) of Crocodile Dundee.
We recognized our great teammate Joey Smelt for receiving the Bronze Star Medal for his heroism and meritorious service in a combat zone. A nice bottle of bourbon to drink to that! A true hero and an honor to have him on the team.
Lastly we recognized our invaluable teammate Billy Biggs for his many years as a Hornet as he departs for Colorado in a matter of days. He will be extremely missed and his days on the field will never be forgotten. Good luck DR. BIGGS!!!!!
Be there again next year, a great time as always!
